PS 84 Queens

Public School 84 Queens was constructed in the early 1900s, but had been so modified over the years that it was no longer landmark eligible. The exterior reconstruction of the school restored the building to a landmark eligible status and solved extensive water infiltration issues.

Nelligan White replaced all masonry and much of the terra cotta detail with cast stone replicas. The team also implemented a continuous membrane and narrow-cavity drainage plane behind the face brick restoration. Lastly, the team recreated a historically accurate cornice with glass fiber-reinforced concrete and replaced all damaged interior finishes.
